John C. Vaughn
Birth: Feb. 24, 1824
Monroe County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Sep. 10, 1875
Thomas County
Georgia, USA

Civil War Confederate Brigadier General. At the start of the Civil War, he was offered positions in the Confederate Government but chose to be elected Colonel of the 3rd Tennessee Regiment. At New Creek bridge and the Battle of Manassas, his regiment captured Union artillery, the first taken by the Confederates in the field. In September 1862, he was commissioned Brigadier General in command of a brigade of mounted men to operate in east Tennessee and southwest Virginia. In 1863, he fought at Vicksburg and engaged in the Battle of Piedmont in 1864. When General Lee surrendered, General Vaughn was one of the five brigade commanders who took part in the last council of war held by President Davis. After the war, he returned to Tennessee, was elected to the State Senate and later became a planter in Georgia. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
